  1. For those planning on attending this game, you should check, but I believe a Visa is needed to go to Russia. At least that is what Joni told me when I talked with him at this past Casino Night when he told me about this game and the Finland games.
  2. [quote name='Dreamie wrote: GhoulieGirl']I don't post that much, but I'll be there next week, Sunday to be exact. Moving there to be with my fiance, so it will be wonderful. I can post here and let you guys know what to expect. I am so excited!!! Well first off, congratulations! What wonderful news for you! Are you going to be there permanently as of Sunday, or is this a first trip over? Have you been before? I would love to hear everything you want to tell us about the Finnish experience, especially all of the little "day in the life" things you will encounter that we'd never consider sitting on this side of the pond. Very cool... Thanks Dreamie. Yes, I will be there permanently when I get there on Sunday August 15. I turned my notice in here on Monday, and am getting things packed and finalized. As of right now, I have never been so this is going to be very exciting for me. I will make sure to let you all know what to expect when you get there. I wanted to say here, but I'm not there yet. I'll be at the two games that are played in Finland, wouldn't miss out on those. I will make sure to keep you guys posted on everyday Finnish life.

  4. I had a poster the last night of the season and I am still sticking with my pick. #7 Granlund
  5. Alcohol has always worked for me in the past for sleeping on planes.
  6. Yes, JR, The Princess of Finland (Nickname given to me by Ron the Ref, and I live up to it!) will feel very lost without Big Mike yelling "That's a Carolina Hurricane's Goal, WOOO, WOOO, WOOO!!!" The Royalty has spoken.
  7. What I can tell you is what Joni told me at Casino Night when I talked to him. He said that there was going to be one game played in Russia. That's what I know. He said that I would need a visa to go to Russia, so I told him that I wouldn't be going. He did quickly throw into the conversation that a passport is needed for Finland.
  8. My mom and I are locked in and going! Looking forward to it.
  9. Booked in and ready to go! I just hate the almost 6 month wait now. Estatic that I am going! I can't wait to go.
  10. Get well soon Tuomo! Can't wait to see you on the ice for the season opener in Finland.
  11. I agree, I think it's time we stuck a fork in this and call it done.
  12. I love the poster! I agree, Joni is probably nursing something. He is not our worst d-man, and all of our guys have had sucky games all season. Now Timmy is hurt, so McBain should see some ice time tonight.
  13. I have to agree with The Big Kahuna on this one. I distinctly remember watching Joni go from one end of the ice last night and pass, yes I said PASS Staal. If that is lazy for Joni, then I really don't want to know what Staal's issue is called. The one 5 on 3 we had against the Coyotes, Staal stood at the blue line and let the puck leave the zone. He made no attempt to try and keep the zone. I see Eric Staal stand a lot on the ice and not put forth an effort. If this isn't lazy, then I don't know what is. Although a blowtorch with his name on it comes to mind. I see Staal pout a lot and not put forth the effort he put forth for Team Canada. If he doesn't want to play consistently night in and night out, then I say find him another team. I don't care if we lost a game if he plays consistently, I'd be happy with him, and back him up, but Staal has been this way since after we won the Cup. Unfortunately, I don't see a change in site for him. Staal skates when he wants to, and plays when he wants to, regardless of what the team needs.
  14. Wow 3-4 feet! I can bring my baseball bat. WOO HOO!!! Much fun to be had. It's going to look like a horror movie bloodbath when I get done with mosquito bashing.The slimey nurse only happened once and to my brother. He hasn't reproduced yet, or has he?? Hmmmm.... Cinderella is on the radio, must pay attention!!
  15. [quote name='v1atlantis wrote: TSA']One of my kids has to pick a country to do a report on school, I told him he needed to pick Finland and use this board as a reference. I've decided if I get to go I'm entering the cell phone throwing contest, mine died today and deserves to be thrown. Cell phone throwing is great , but what you really should try is rubberboot throwing or mosquito swatting. Those are the best. Well... swamp soccer is cool too , but it´s really hard. OOOH!! Swamp soccer! Now that sounds like super fun. I have tons of mosquitos where I live due to the pond behind my house. I look like one big red blimp when they come out at night. LOL
  16. [quote name='Portisfreak wrote: v1atlantis'] [..] Hotel Katajanokka was a prison before http://www.bwkatajanokka.fi/In_English/Hotel_Katajanokka [...] Yeah I know, found that to be pretty interesting, and also it's the only Hotel I found where I'm allowed to smoke in my room Well, I hope I'll be able to find a bus that drives in the proper direction at all, as Airports use to be not too small, and I don't understand one single word of finnish nor can I read it^^ So for now: Who else is actually coming? As I saw on lippu.fi, all their tickets are already sold... I will be coming. Right now just waiting on the final ticket packages from the Canes. I'm really exicted about coming. I've wanted to go to Finland and these games are just the swift kick I needed.
  17. Must not be too bad, Oskar was sent back to Albany today as posted on the twitter feed on the Canes site. If Sutter can't play, then they'll recall someone, hopefully Oskar again.
  18. Yup, Cole is a game time decision, but I would play Oskar instead of Cole. Let Cole rest up for Saturday's game. Give Oskar more than 6:46 of ice time though. v1atlantis, love the new avatar. Very Crosby I must say.
  19. He's on the line up sheet for tonight. However, that doesn't mean he will play. I hope he does. I want to watch him live instead of on the TV. I am hoping that when they get the game day notes out, they will make an announcement about Cole playing or not.
  20. To put it on the main board would be $30.00. Whenever I have done it for my mother, I've had them put it at the top, on one of the smaller monitors, which is free. I did it this year for her and it cost me nothing, unless it changed. Get in touch with Karen Prince. Be warned, there is a cut off time to get it in, I almost missed it this year for my mother.
  21. I can't remember where I read this, may have been here from our blogger, but Oskar Osala didn't get much playing time in Washington. I for one am excited to see him play when he finally is able to come up. I think once he gets playing regularly, he will show us the potential he has, and what Washington gave away.
  22. Don't forget to go and shake Kipper's hand and thank him for completely sucking today and not giving the Finns any chance to remotely get back into this game. Yes Backs allowed two goals, but the damage was done by Kipper.
  23. Pull Kipper now!!!!! Kipper has sucked since the game started. Jalonen you should have pulled him before now!
